INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. and#8212; One of todayand#8217;s hottest design trends is a return to nature. From fabrics to wall coverings to accessories, our living spaces can easily reflect an embrace of Mother Nature.

As our lives outside our homes become more harried and stressful, we are turning to our homes as retreats, and decorating them with furnishings and accessories we find soothing and comfortable.

Fabrics: Linen and Cottons are great natural fibers that add a touch of the outdoors to any room.

Colors: From gorgeous garden shades to the rich fruit tones of deep raspberries, soft banana yellows, plums and strawberries. All these colors are uplifted by natureand#8217;s green and#8212; the color that will dominate our interior decorating in this decade and#8212; from deep, leafy green to teal, to greens with a yellow tint.

Furnishings: Todayand#8217;s worn weathered wood styles, featuring more of a matte finish with lighter wood tones, are even appearing on contemporary furnishings. Sofas and chairs are being covered in natural cotton and#8212; and sport trims of raffia and hemp. Wicker and rattan furniture mixed with warm wood tones lend themselves to more of a casual style of decorating.

Window Treatments: Floral print drapery fabrics designed in simple yet stunning Drapery Panels is like having a great looking picture frame surrounding a favorite photo. By coordinating your and#8220;bloomingand#8221; window treatments with furniture, bedding and#8212; even your linens, youand#8217;ll find yourself surrounded by Mother Natureand#8217;s beauty.

What better way to start soothing the soul than in your own home.
